Children’s On-line Privacy Protection Rule has not changed since 1999 and this will be the first real overall of the system.
With the rise of social media ever on our mind it has become a matter of not just how ,we protect our children! But the fact we must at all costs shield them from the type of people who will at any cost, exploit their social appetite for such sites as Facebook and the like!
As the rise of social media has grown to obtain every extra morsel of information about our lives, it has led to many cases of children being exploited for gain! As in the past we have moaned and tried to stop our children consuming sugary drinks or eating quick snacks and we failed.
This time it is different and we must act now and l welcome any changes that will strengthen this act and provide a way to protect their fragile minds!
This time we must not fail them, they are our future!
